"Culture Wars" refers to a conflict between traditionalists (conservative) values and progressive (liberal) values. The phrase on the button, “The 90's are the 60's” demonstrates that the number 90 is the number 60 “backwards & upside-down turned.” The 90s and the 60s can be comparable in that they both have an era of rebellion. The 90s explored important social issues through music, theater, and literature, just as the 60s had done. During the 60s, there was an anti-establishment cultural event that spread around the world. Because of conflicts of social values, there was widespread social tension concerning cultural issues in both the 60s and the 90s.
